Kiting Pet Peeves

Postby SupaEZ » Sun Nov 20, 2011 4:14 am

When someone ask me if i need help to launch......when someone ask me if i need help to land...kiteboarders who must use heel bungees...twin tippers riding in the ocean when waves are really good..people who only own one kite "yet take the lines off kite" when packing down and "put them back on" at next session...those who do not protect their eyes from "uv rays" while kiting...kitesurfers who say "i always ride strapless" in waves and if i feel like jumping i'll just pull out my twin tip....after riding for 3hrs in 25 knots you come in because the wind dropped to 12 and someone on the beach ask you "too windy for you ?" and can you rent those?? ...newbies or show-offs running and "jumping with kite" on a crowded beach ....Please share yours and add to this list...Thank you and have fun... :) :)

What club is this? It's the club of life.

Do you get cold? Nope and I have magic that keeps me from getting wet too.

Where can I rent a kite to try it out for an hour? Right next to the hang glide rental office.

What do you do when the kite falls in the water? Drown.

So has the kite ever fallen in the water? Yes, I'm a zombie.

Is it too windy for you? Yes of course. How on earth can I have perfect hair if the wind blows?

People who turn their back when you are trying to ask for a launch/land.

20+ knots on a work day. 2 knots at the weekend.

People who leave broken glass on the beach. Jet ski poseurs.

that's your list of complaints..really?! people asking if they can help you is a pet peeve? people who don't do everything the same exact way you do everything is a pet peeve?

ok, here's one of my pet peeves: people like you.
